Neuschwanstein (Germany) / Neuschwanstein - Biography
« on: January 16, 2016, 06:13:17 AM »
Neuschwanstein is a German Band, which was active in the late seventies. The band was named after the famous German castle Neuschwanstein, which is situated somewhere in the Bavarian Alps.

Their first and last release was an album called Battlement, which is a must for every proglover, who is interested in Genesis type prog. The vocals have a remarking resemblance with Peter Gabriels Genesis stuff.

At first the album was a real mystery. The first release had a cover, with absolutly no info on the band.
We had to guess where the band came from, because alltough it appeared to be a German band, there was no German accent in the vocals, like you can hear in the vocals off Frank Borneman, Eloy's singer.

The original album contains 6 tracks and there was a seventh track added on the re-release on CD:



1. Loafer Jack (4:42)
2. Ice with Dwale (6:21)
3. Intruders and the Punishment (7:34)
4. Beyond the Bugle (7:31)
5. Battlement (7:05)
6. Midsummer day (7:42)
(cd-bonus)
7. Zärtlicher Abschied (5:42)

If you listen to the music on this album, you can clearly hear that the band was influenced by Genesis, Camel and you can hear some touches of Eloy.

Years later we finally discovered more info on the band through the internet. It seems the toured in Germany as a support-act to Novalis, another German Prog Band.

Finally we found a line-up:

Frederic Joos playing guitar
Uli Limpert playing bass
Klaus Mayer playing flute & synthesizers
Thomas Neuroth playing keyboards
Hans-Peter Schwarz playing drums
Roger Weiler playing guitar
Reiner Zimmer playing bass & doing the vocals

A short Biography on Alquin:

A few students in Delft start a group in 1968. It is called Threshold Fear and they mainly play rhytmn and blues. In 1970 the band members are: Hein Mars (bass, vocals), Job Tarenskeen (vocal, sax, percussion), Ronald Ottenhof (sax, flute), Ferdinand Bakker (guitar, vocals, keyboards), Dick Franssen (keyboards) and Bart Terlaak (drums). A single is released on Negram: Sally Saddlepain/Thank me not, the track was produced by Peter Vink who later on would form Finch.

At the end of 1971 the group changes it's name to Alquin, named after the student society and rehearsal room Alcuin. They also change the drummer Terlaak goes and Paul Westrate comes. In 1972 they perform in Paradiso for the first time with the new name. Due to their growing reputation a record deal with Polydor is closed and they record their debut album Marks, produced by Hans van Oosterhout. The album is mainly a mix of rock, jazz and classical music. As a single You always can change is released with on the flip side the non album track Hard royce.

The popularity of the band is growing in 1973. The readers of  Oor magazine vote Alquin as the most innovative band. They also give a good performance at the Pinkpop festival in the Netherlands. In England the band has a performance on The Old Grey Whistle Test. A second album, The Mountain Queen is recorded, with the help of producer Don Lawrence. For fans of progressive rock, this is probably their best effort. In 1974 the band tours with The Golden Earring and The Who in England and Germany.

Odyssice (NL) / Odyssice - Biography
« on: January 13, 2016, 06:12:30 PM »
A real nice Bio on Odyssice, taken from the bands website:

Odyssice (a fantasy name associated with Greek mythology) was founded in 1986 by Bastiaan Peeters (guitar). The group had an enormous start when 'Track One' was played on the Dutch radio-show Countdown Café in 1987. That night the phone didn’t stopped ringing. Kees Baars, host of 'Countdown Café', said he had never seen such a reaction. The music of Odyssice is quite unique and can be described as dark clouds of string-ensembles and beautiful long guitar-solos. The guitar-solos add a vocal quality to this impressive instrumental music. All these ingredients make the music colorful and illustrative.

In the beginning

In 1988 'Losing Her' was the new track on the 'Exposure'-LP from the magazine 'Sym-Info', and according to 'Sym-Info's' office 'Losing Her' was one of the best songs on the album. The huge interest lad to an invitation to perform at a 'Sym-Info's' festival at ’t Noorderligt (now called 013) in Tilburg on June 16th 1989. The Noorderligt performance was a huge success. Requests for the live recordings of that show were enormous and it was sold out in no time.

The band was musically successful but musical differences caused them to disappear from spotlight for some time. Decided was to reincarnate Odyssice with new members. After a long period of try-outs, including singers. The band completed itself with the addition of keyboard-player Jeroen van der Wiel.
